            I just found one of these on a wreck off NJ. It looks like it had been down for at least a year judging by the growth on it. Before I brought it up I checked it, and it fired right up.

            Comments about Underwater Kinetics Sunlight C8 Dive Light:

            Every year when I get out my gear to go on my annual dive trip I have problems with this light. After sending it in for service and being told there was nothing wrong with it the dealer mentioned it would only work on Duracell batteries.

            Now the spring load at the bottom of the light is loose and it is difficult to get any batteries in it.

            I'd find a different, less eccentric light if I were purchasing one.

            Comments about Underwater Kinetics Sunlight C8 Dive Light:

            Yes, it looks dorky, but it works, it's cheap and it had a second bulb that you can switch with the flip of a switch. I have the optional 18.2 volt bulb in the back-up position so as to give me a hi/lo beam choice.

            I went ultra cheesy and got the lime green model. I figured that I would have to be the only diver with a light that was both ugly and fluorescent green on any given dive.
